Tapping into my reserves

Friday, June 28, 2013

Today started way to early with an ambulance run at 3:10 am. It
was scary for the man's wife, as he has had heart issues for years.
We made the long drive to his hospital of choice so he could see
his own doctor. It was an uneventful trip and he seemed to be
doing fine when he arrived. I haven't heard if he was admitted or
not. By the time we got home, it was my normal time to be awake
so I have stayed up all day. I finished my projects for the day,
went to help DH spread grass clippings in the garden and then
did chores. The baby chicks have adjusted to being in the barn
and are doing fine.
The owners of the café invited us for supper. Our romaine lettuce
topped with a luscious dressing, sausage, stirrum, (a type of
homemade dough that is fried), bing cherries and a rhubarb dessert.
A very simple meal and we had fun visiting with the other guests.
DS and his fiancé (yes, our son who is moving away asked his GF
to get married) are home to start the process of packing for the move
in about 2 weeks. So much to sort through and give away what they
will not need in a small apartment. Mostly the toys, books and a
few other things. Clothes have been sorted through for Goodwill
and bagged up. Another step forward in their life's journey.
I am catching up with all my SP friends before bedtime. I think it
will be a early-to-bed night.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend. HUGS!

    Wow sorry you had to get up so early. Hope you don't get to melancholy with your sons move. It would be tough for me but my DD is still young. I am sure you are more focused on his needs than your own. Please get some well deserved rest! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Oh my! That's an early hour to start your day! But it was good you could be there for them! Congrats to your son on his impending marriage!! Hope you got to sleep at a good time last night and got refreshed for today!
    Happy for the chicks! My next door neighbor has some chicks now and they are so cute! She has them in a thing she built (on wheels) on her porch and the mobile coop (truck) is nearly finished. By the time they are big enough to move into it, it will be done! Going to be interesting to have chickens so close! Thank goodness no roosters in our bunch! Just laying hens.(eventually----hehe)
    Have a great day! ((HUGS))

    Hope you can get a good night's sleep. Must be very rewarding being an EMT. Praise the Lord for folks who have this gift.
    Is your son moving far away or fairly close?

    Long day but hopefully your patient is doing well. It has to feel good to know you are there in those moments when others need you the most. I take it you are a volunteer - my brother-in-law does that in the small town they live in. It is really tough when those you are called for are dear friends which seems to pretty much be the case in small towns.
    Hope you get a little extra sleep tonight.

    I thank the lord every day for people like you who are an EMT and are available all hours of the day and night to take people to the hospital when the need arises.

    Have a great weekend, my friend!
